The mane six take it upon themselves to try and help Josh get accustomed to life in Equestria until Princess Celestia can send him back home. However, the fact that Josh doesn't even believe in love, friendship, or anything like that may prove to be a difficult obstacle to overcome. [[ItGotWorse It gets worse]] when Josh is turned into a pony due to Poison Joke, making him even angrier.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: So far, Josh has been shipped with all of the mane six, as well as Zecora, and even (very briefly and subtly) with ''[[HoYay Spike]]''. And knowing the author, sooner or later, one of these is going to become an actual relationship.

Added DiffLines:

** Chapter 33. Zecora shows Josh [[spoiler: her scrapbook of her and her family]], and he immediately becomes furious. But when she psychoanalyzes him and virtually picks him apart with her words and intelligence, he comes extremely close to ignoring his principle of [[WouldNotHitAGirl not hitting girls]] and [[WouldHitAGirl assaulting her]].

* CerebusSyndrome: The story starts out lightearted and funny, but with [[spoiler: the revelations about Josh's past]] and [[spoiler: his strange dreams]], it's slowly getting a darker plot.

** He also finds himself having to ''consciously try'' to be a jerk to Fluttershy. He backs down when she gives him a cute look. Subverted in [[spoiler: Chapter 29, where he seems to go right back to insulting Fluttershy naturally.
